The SUIT DOE has created a guidance manual for Exploration and Production (E&P)
operators who are planning an oil & gas development project. This document,
Exploration & Production Operator’s Compliance Manual for Energy Development Projects on the Southern Ute Indian Reservation,
provides guidance to E&P Operators on the processes for obtaining 1) authorization
to drill an oil and gas (O&G) well and 2) right-of-way (ROW) easements and surface leases on the Southern Ute Indian Reservation (SUIR).
